Xsens delivers full-featured, miniature motion tracking module at low-cost

Xsens, the leading innovator in 3D motion tracking technology, today expanded its successful 4th generation MTi product portfolio by releasing a new series of complete, self-contained 3D IMU/VRU/AHRS motion tracking modules for high volume industrial and prosumer applications. The new MTi 1-series of Motion Trackers offer low cost while incorporating the latest in advanced sensor fusion and miniature MEMS technologies. Individually calibrated and tested to enable minimal implementation effort, the MTi 1-series delivers a dynamic accuracy of 1 deg RMS for roll and pitch, making them the most accurate 3D motion trackers in their class.

The communication protocol and API is identical across the entire Xsens product portfolio; making integration of the low cost MTi 1-series, de facto industry standard MTi 10-series and high-performance MTi 100-series easy. Designers can choose from the widest selection of high-performance 3D motion trackers and select the Xsens motion tracker suitable for their design, while re-using validated driver and application code from other projects, dramatically reducing engineering time and risk.

The MTi 1-series is a 12x12x2.5 mm PLCC28-compatible module that can output orientation, acceleration, rate of turn and magnetic field from its I2C, SPI or UART interfaces. The advanced and robust signal processing pipeline, along with the proven XKF3 sensor fusion algorithm, ensures unmatched performance in many applications including robotics, agriculture, heavy machinery, handheld laser scanners and drones. The module’s onboard processing reduces the load on the application processor to lower the overall power consumption of the end system, while consuming less than 45 mW. The MTi 1-series is CE and FCC-certified.

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs. The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs. Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these p

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications. The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications. “We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner E

TURCK M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference. The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection. The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.
